Durban Poison is a rare treat when it comes to untouched genetics in the current cannabis market. She is one of the only original “Landrace” strains that stood the test of time and is truly a classic. Imagine landrace strains as the forefathers of cannabis. Prior to the concept of mad scientists selectively cross-breeding cannabis based off unique characteristics, consumer choice was limited by mother nature. Hybridization is currently a common theme in cannabis, therefore consumers are more likely to find a Gorilla Glue x Girl Scout Cookies x Blue Dream hybrid than a pure, untouched genetic lineage such as Durban Poison which was discovered growing naturally in the 3rd most populated city of South Africa - Durban and still grows wild today. Recently, this strain has gained significant popularity with recreational consumers who are interested in a healthy lifestyle due to the presence of THC-V. Dubbed “skinny weed”, genetic lines that possess THC-V are known to suppress the appetite, as opposed to causing munchies. Durban Poison has the complex and intense sour flavor that is commonly associated with Sativas. The high level of Limonene in this strain produce that face-puckering, sour effect and aroma. The sharp sourness is followed closely by a fruity/earthy flavor due to the presence of Myrcene in high concentrations which is also found commonly in Mangoes and Lemongrass.
The bud structure has rock solid density with a relatively average calyx to leaf ratio. Cured Durban Poison is a light lime color complemented by gorgeous tangerine pistils and large bulbous trichomes that twinkle and shimmer under bright light.
